Tannenbaum comments on Wallace, Stills-- Mon Mar 23 1:45 pm --
Dolphins management feels comfortable with Landry, Stills
"Mike Wallace contributed the last few years," Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said. "We felt once we had Kenny Stills, it was a good opportunity for [Wallace] in Minnesota. It gives him a chance to get a fresh start and for us with Kenny Stills in our offense and where we project him with Jarvis Landry we just thought it was the right fit to do that now. "He's (Stills) played in the league. He's had a fair amount of production. His production is what it is -- it's been good. It hasn't been prolific by any stretch but we felt for what we're asking that position to do there was explosiveness. And the routes he runs well were responsibilities we felt were pretty close to what we're going to do with our offense."(Miami Herald)
FF Today's Take:The Dolphins saw an opportunity to get a younger, cheaper version of Wallace and took it. Given the comments, it's safe to assume that Landry, Stills and tight end Jordan Cameron will be the top targets for Tannehill in 2015.
Saints purge continues, Kenny Stills traded to MIA-- Fri Mar 13 12:53 pm --
Dolpins and Saints revamping receiving corps
The Saints are apparently willing to trade everyone. A league source tells PFT that the Saints are dealing wide receiver Kenny Stills to the Dolphins, in exchange for linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and a third-round pick.(ProFootballTalk)
FF Today's Take:Interesting move considering Stills is a relatively cheap player, scheduled to earn $585K this year and $675K next year. With this move, the Saints have now lost their top two receivers from last season (Jimmy Graham and Stills). It's been reported that Miami has shopped Mike Wallace but they've yet to find a trade partner for the veteran wideout.
